So what do you think of the improvement of the Darkstalkers pages?

Just a heads-up, main page ads are being turned on for this wiki. Because of this, I've made a change to the main page in order to avoid a placement conflict between the content and the adspace. Without this change, the ad would display on top of the current content, blocking it from users. Obviously, you are welcome to make further adjustments as you see fit - this is just a "quick-fix" to avoid a visual conflict. Please feel free to contact me on my talk page if you have any questions, comments, or issues. Cheers!

Decision time Edit
Since you insisted I ask any questions I had here, I have two that will affect the wikia as a whole:
1) How comfortable are you with the inclusion of in-game credit lists on game pages?
I realize that a wikia isn't geared toward being too data heavy (not like sites like Sega Retro), but I have seen one wikia (for Sonic the Hedgehog) include credits (http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Sonic:_Night_of_the_Werehog). I ask this because a lot of credits have either been ignored or been corrupted with time and human error, so wouldn't it make sense to include them with the intention of a pure source?
2) As you noticed I edited Yoshihiro Sakaguchi's page. I specialize in the sound department and as such have since credited a page for Minae Fujii. The question here is, would you accept other people who are credited, like for character design or programming, no matter how meager?
Again, I've found people and credits that are incorrectly done or completely ignored (points to Mobygames). In taking a sample from the VS. series, I've found that I was able to crack quite a few aliases that Mobygames doesn't take into account and may not ever take into account. In accordance with my first question, it works hand in hand with incorporating the in-game credits; covering every last role and affecting the site as a whole.
So icespike, what's your decision?

I already gave you an answer. Please check your talk page. Thanks. ▫16:01, November 6, 2011 (UTC)
Hi. I'm back and I'm going ot put new research I been doing and I came across this! http://capcom.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Darkstalkers_Characters ! Vega from Street Fighter SHOULD NOT BE THERE! Just pointing that out. I sometime see mistakes like this around here and I hope you can fix this please.
ARCADE QUARTERMASTER Edit
Hi icy! This is Shadi_Potter from the www.arcadequartermaster.com site. Sorry for the long delay, I'm still busy with building 2 sites for that portal. Anyway, I think I lost the Shadi_Potter acct since I think it was connected to my old yahoo acct that was linked to that. So this will be my new one and pls delete the other one if you can.
Anyway, I'm into the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure shrines now. I wonder if there are more official art for the 2nd game based from the flyers? :)
Kudos on maintaining the wikia! ShadiPotter 00:38, November 13, 2011 (UTC) Shad

Hello. Been a while since I last sent you a message. Many improvements has been added and I would like you to change the Darkstalkers 3 title page into the original name "Vampire Savior: The Lord Of Vampire", just to show some users the difference between the names of the original and the plus version. Many people were really confuse with that. So if you have time, please change it. DarkStalker Deity 21:22, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
This user http://capcom.wikia.com/wiki/User:Rs_Benson has mess around here by messing up Pyron page from the Darkstalkers section! I wonder if you can do something about this user and I already undo it (I read around of how to undo things that are unnecessary to the wiki pages). Please do something before he'll mess up other pages!
I'm sorry to bother you but this user http://capcom.wikia.com/wiki/User:Pyron1 is doing more damage on Pyron page, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge page as well. Please do something, and I don't know how much damage he done but I'll try to undo it.
Thanks for the kind words! I also wrote the bulk of the info on the DMC1 and DMC3 pages on Wikipedia while working with the Devil May Cry Taskforce. Eventually we got both those games to Featured Article status. --Boradis 02:27, February 28, 2012 (UTC)
HI DUDES WELL.
THE PICTURES I HAVE PUT INTO THIS ON THIS PAGE I HAVE FOUND ON ONE SIDE.(Mark3kirby 18:55, March 2, 2012 (UTC))
I am A big Fei Long/Bruce Lee fan, So if you find any artwork for either one of them, Please let me know.
1000 Pages! Edit
- Nice, thanks for the reply! Could you show me the other pictures that are like Isabela's? And I will credit this website as the source for it if they are uploaded to the DR wiki. Thanks! --Mistertrouble189 19:38, June 6, 2012 (UTC)
Wikia wide galleryEdit
I'm unsure if this is short time or if this will be fixed but I noticed a lot of wikia's galleries currently have stretched images. I'm not sure if this has to do with my browser or if it's actually wiki wide. I do know that I fixed the problem by clicking the "Add photo to gallery" button and then click "finish" it fixed this. It also adds nothing to post count. If you find this problem sticking around here, message me and I'll do my best to try and fix it on as many pages as possible, here, for you. Notesworth Paddington (talk) 06:04, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
- No problem. My grammar is pretty shotty and I'd love to be able to help out more. One thing though is, on the Darkstalkers wiki, I went through and fixed all the galleries with no problem, no credit to my edit count was given for it. And it makes sense since I didn't make any real edits. I tried it on here and it did give me credit. Not sure why but I'd rather not edit stuff and get credit for doing nothing. Notesworth Paddington (talk) 01:25, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Haterzdie211 has been spamming irrelevant images and creating unnecessary pages for Heavenly Sword just because Ninja Theory (DmC) was involved as well as a fanon page (said page being the sole reason for some of his image uploads/edits). Though he seems to be doing some good (if only for Devil May Cry-related images) he's doing a lot more bad and needs to be blocked indefinitely and his contributions taken down for the most part. Thank you. HubStyle (talk) 00:20, February 14, 2013 (UTC)
How do I link new images on a character's page?
Also, I have lots of images from Onimusha Soul, but no actual info on the game (other than that it's a browser game) - can you help with that?
I know next to nothing about the game, thanks to Capcom's lack of marketing. Sorry. - 01:31, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
The descendant thing.Edit
Can some Capcom Database member here 'lock' the Ingrid page so we AWCs can't edit it? There is some stubborn AWC here who always write that Ryu is Ingrid's descendant like its a confirmed fact when its really just speculation.
188.8.131.52 16:23, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Now the same stubborn AWC has been erasing this message (in the Ingrid talk page) twice now (and will most likely continue to do instead of responding). Please lock the Ingrid page, thanks.
184.108.40.206 05:10, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
The Ingrid page and its corresponding talk page have been protected. However, this only applies to unregistered users (users using their IP addresses), and will not prevent the user from doing the same under a username. This, I'm afraid, is all I can do. -▫ 14:27, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
I understand, thanks for the help!
220.127.116.11 18:20, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
Since we are discussing SF pages, I suggest the Ryu, Evil Ryu, Akuma, Akuma (Forms), M. Bison, Rose and Juri Han pages should be protected as well since they are the ones, as far as I know, that one AWC keep adding useless, unnecessary or untrue info the most.
18.104.22.168 05:31, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
Done, done, done and done! Thanks for providing links to make it easier for me to hop over to those pages! :) - 17:49, April 1, 2013 (UTC)
22.214.171.124 07:07, April 2, 2013 (UTC).
Done! Again, thanks for providing the links. It would've been a lot more time-consuming without them. :) - 17:29, April 2, 2013 (UTC)
Fixed the Poison pageEdit
I just fixed the Poison page, making it better, fell also free to lock it if you could. :)
126.96.36.199 11:13, April 6, 2013 (UTC)
Can we also lock these please?
188.8.131.52 04:23, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
Can we also lock:
- C. Viper
- El Fuerte
- Asura's Wrath
- The Punisher
- Star Gladiator
- Plasma Sword

No trouble at all! I'm just glad you weren't angry! - ▫14:21, April 8, 2013 (UTC)
Strider Famicom ImagesEdit
Hi! I saw those two images you uploaded in May 4 and I was wondering, if possible, could you tell me the source? Did you scanned those yourself? I know the first image was published in a preview in the Marukatsu Famicom October issue, but I've never seen the second one at all. Either way, Thanks in Advance! Strider Kage (talk) 07:44, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
Also, you don't mind me taking them off for the Strider Wiki, right? :P
- Thanks! That was very helpful, and reminds me I really need to get/find a copy of the Collection ;). As for the images being created for the Famicom game, you are entirely correct: the first image was used in the October 1988 issue of Marukatsu Famicom, in a preview of the Famicom Strider Hiryu done before its delay and eventual cancellation.
Licensed Video Swap ToolEdit
Hey there, Icysugarspike. My name is Doug and I'm a member of Wikia's Community Development Team! Wikia has recently updated a new admin tool for videos called Licensed Video Swap. This is a new tool that allows admins to quickly swap embedded videos on your wiki from outside providers (such as Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc) to the same (or very similar) video that exists on Wikia Video. The benefit being that the videos hosted on Wikia Video are fully licensed and will never be removed for a licensing issues.
You can read about the updates to the tool on this staff blog. and I am available to help you if you would like any assistance switching any videos out on your wiki, it's your call. Thank you and have a good one!

School Life Mode Edit
Hi, I'm just wondering if the article about the School Life Mode (from the Rival Schools games) created by user BlazeSeed is necessary or if its a candidate for deletion. Because as far as I'm aware, we don't have or make articles about certain modes from Capcom games, correct me if I'm wrong though. Thanks.--22.214.171.124 09:14, December 6, 2013 (UTC)
Problem with the Byakko article Edit
Hello, I'm awc 85 (though that number will changes sometimes, I let you know then). Last night I created an article for Star Gladiator character Byakko, however I'm afraid I somehow made a mistake with the article because I have a problem with adding categories in the Category template as they do not seem to stick, nor do they show in "Preview" during editing or in Recent Activity. They only show in the edit screen itself (the one I'm writing in right now).
I dunno if this is a problem with my computer or something. It may have to do with the fact that I created the article starting with "Blank page" instead of the "Standard layout", I would gladly like some help to fix the mistake I made.--126.96.36.199 06:27, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
Hi! Awc 85 here. Darn it, still nothing with the Byakko article. I tried and tried but no results. Maybe the article should be deleted or renamed (though I don't know how or if its even possible for AWCs to do it) to something else and then delete it so a new Byakko article can be created properly this time. Also, really sorry for all the trouble I made with this article.--188.8.131.52 05:11, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Yes! The categories are shown, good job! :) --184.108.40.206 17:07, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
Locking articles Edit
Decapre article Edit
Hi, the fifth "new" character for USFIV is confirmed to the Cammy lookalike doll member Decapre (boo <_<). Created an article for her and the doll group. Don't know how to upload all the images of her that are coming in fast so feel free to upload.--220.127.116.11 05:21, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
Lost Planet Colonies Edit
hi i have no username but i recently completed the capcom game:lost planet colonies.I would like it if you could send a message to the game creators of capcom games to make a new game for lost planet colonies.i was thinking about the end of the game when i thought that you could make lost planet colonies 2.if it is possible to create the game e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i will reply back to you with my ideas for the game if you can give your e-mail adress. try to message me as soon as posible if possible.
Is this artwork of Ray with sunglasses official? He never appears with Sissel's sunglasses in the game and the few sources I known, and it seems kinda "sketchy" compared to his images (one with light off and other on) without the sunglasses. --Quick (u•t) 20:15, July 20, 2014 (UTC)
- In doubt, I replaced it by its art in TVTropes. I found a better quality image here, but it has a watermark. --Quick (u•t) 21:30, July 20, 2014 (UTC)
No problem, glad to help! It is a bit easy to confuse between the two Ninas, though I think the face/hairstyle and small wings are a bit of a giveaway. Odd they didn't use the bigger wings from the last two costumes for the Nina II look, would have fit her perfectly.
Me? I'm fine, just a bit boggled down by some RL but otherwise doing good. You're doing really well here, as far as I can see :). Fortunately I got time to play through Strider, and I have to say I have a blast with it. They did a very good job capturing the sense of speed and freedom from the original, and moving Hiryu around is just delightful. The Intel data is an extra I'm happy they bothered to add, and IMO Solo is hands-down the best character revival in the game in overall design, character and boss fights. Juroung has quickly become my favorite new guy as well, too bad he didn't got enough screen time though. Would love to see either of them again.
